CCWD hires firm to recruit new manager

By Mike Morris, The Union Democrat

The Calaveras County Water District's Board of Directors hired a Tracy-based firm Wednesday to recruit a new general manager.

Brent Ives, owner of BHI Management Consulting, said the recruitment process typically takes four or five months.

"That could be shortened if the perfect candidate is out there and can take the job," he told the board.

Ives, who is also the mayor of Tracy, estimated his total cost will be $20,800.

Following a closed-session performance evaluation in late May, CCWD directors voted 4-1 to terminate former manager Mitch Dion's employment contract.

Director Bob Dean voted against the decision.

Dean asked Ives how the district's track record of being "an agency that doesn't seem to keep a general manager" would impact the search.

He also questioned the role of the upcoming election in November, in which four of five director seats are up for election.

"It does create an interesting conundrum," Ives replied.

The district has gone through several general managers in the past decade.
